22 June 1998 -- Fires in Florida

This 2-image Java applet will take a minute or two to load...

Hold any mouse button down as you move the cursor across the large GOES-8 visible image; the smaller inset window shows the corresponding GOES-8 3.9 micron shortwave IR image. In the visible image, smoke plumes appear hazy, while in the 3.9 micron IR image the fire hot spots appear as warm (dark) pixels. Surface winds are plotted in red, with obstructions to visibility (H=haze, K=smoke) plotted in yellow.
